In this post series, I will discuss what resilience means for IT systems and why resilient software design has become mandatory.
In this post, I will discuss if there is a difference between resilience and fault tolerance when talking about IT systems.
Resilience IMO is a huge topic. It has a broader scope than most people think and – even more important – it has become much more relevant for most of us than most people imagine. Thus, time to shed some light on this topic. Over the course of several posts in the future I will discuss several aspects of resilience. Of course, my main focus will still be IT. But in some places I will leave the boundaries of IT as this topic affects – and supports – us in many ways.
